The Immortal Thor #4 Review:

This issue has it all: Thor versus Storm. Thor teaming up with Loki. More Thors. A very large Thor. Everything!

Host Alex Zalben kicked things off saying he’s been a bit back and forth on the series so far, but “loved this [issue], it was so good.” He added there was a “great fight between Storm and Thor that is so much fun, and explores their powers in interesting ways, showing off the differences between them.” He also lauded the “awesome build-up to the end.”

Justin Tyler called the issue “dope,” and compared it to Jason Aaron’s run on the series, how the writer would “crack an idea about Thor” and then run with it in a “surprising, unique way.”

Pete LePage agreed, shouting out the “nerdy moments” in the issue. Particularly towards the end when Thor, Storm, Loki, and Beta Ray Bill are all playing “hot potato” with Thor’s hammer.

And wrapping up, Zalben noted there is some “absolutely wild Beta Ray Bill stuff” in the issue, with Tyler adding, “I couldn’t believe it was in there.”
